MORE than 50 Esayidi employees staged a sit-in at Liberty offices in Port Shepstone in Oribi demanding a pension fund payout.

Esayidi TVET Sadtu chairperson Trevor Ngiyela said the pension fund was supposed to have paid out after their migration from College Council under Department of Education to Department of Higher Education in April.

“We were told that since we are being transferred from council to DoHE our Liberty pension funds will be paid out to us and we will be transferred to Government Employees Pension Fund (GEPF).”

The employees said Liberty has been promising since April that their documents are being processed.

Pamella Gounden of Liberty explained to them that the process cannot be done in a day.

“This is not a one-step process. The documents have to be captured then sent to different departments and then they come back for membership numbers and so.”

The exact date of payment was not finalised, but the employees asked that the process be made faster.

Liberty senior staff said they will do their best to fast track the process
